Happy St. Patty's Day!

The Stew is made and 
ready to be reheated in the crock pot
for Sunday Dinner....



Key lime pie #2 is cooling 
on the back deck - because 
it's cold out there!!!


I'm trying to think "GREEN" even though
it's white and getting whiter outside - sigh!




A batch of No-Knead bread
is rising on the cupboard
in hopes of a crusty
loaf to go with the stew!


All 'tis well .........




Key Lime Pie

25 crackers – crushed - 1 1/2 Cups
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
½ Cup butter – melted
Mix crumbs, sugar and butter and press into a 9” pie plate.  Bake at 350F for 12 minutes until golden.

4 lrg. Egg yolks – reserve whites for meringue if desired
14 oz. can sweetened condensed Milk (1 ½ Cups)
12 Key limes, juiced - ½ Cup juice

  2. Spring was springing! Ha! Made me laugh out loud. It's coming this way for Tuesday and Wednesday. Mercy it is cold out there...we've been right back into January temps for a week with another week or more to go.

    Looks as if it'll feel like spring on the inside. Your blog looks springy and the new header with all the green depression glass is a delight!

  5. Happy St.Patrick's day to you a day late. Italy is quite void of celebrating St. Pat's day. If this makes you feel any better it snowed in Milan this morning! :)
    We hope it all clears up by tomorrow.
